All About the Conference

Conference APP - READY TO DOWNLOAD A WEEK AWAY FROM CONFERENCE!

Big picture

All things conference will be housed in one area - our conference APP. Start by downloading the free AttendeeHub APP in your store. Then, search for NDCA Conference and enter the password NDCA2019. From there, you can explore all things related to the conference!


Our conference app is like your new Swiss Army knife specifically designed to add value to your conference experience. While you're with us, you'll get:


  • Interactive conference schedule where you can pick your breakout sessions, view speaker profiles, and download all available speaker handouts
  • Interactive map to "Vendor World" See where each vendor booth is located, make sure you don't miss anyone, and easily collect contact information for vendors you want to follow up with later
  • Up to the moment details about special offers for "mobile eyes only", changes to the schedule that may come up, and reminders so you don't miss all of the great events planned for you
  • Easily share contact info with other coaches, message within the app, and stay in touch with your new network of coaches! Plan to get a drink after the event, or get lunch together to keep your new network going strong
  • FAQs so you know what you need to know about travel, WI-fi, dress code, etc. We've got you covered


When you're back home with your team, the app becomes a powerful tool to quickly recall, implement, or share the experience with others:


  • Which education sessions did I attend? What were the actionable takeaways?
  • What additional insight (slides, handouts, notes, etc.) can I use to improve my coaching toolbox?
  • Which breakthrough ideas should I share with my team?
  • Which exhibitors did I like most and want to follow up with?
  • Who did I meet at this conference? Which new contacts are high on my follow-up list?

What to Wear

CONFERENCE:


For the conference, plan to wear casual clothing. Most of us have clothing in which we can also move, in case we all of a sudden feel the need to sit on the floor and get a good stretch in seconde position (which by the way is totally acceptable). Don't miss the morning Zumba and Yoga classes as well. Comfort is key!


GALA:


For the Gala, plan to step it up and dress it up - no prom dresses and tuxes, but wear something fun. The Gala is included in your conference fee, so don't plan to skip! If you are planning a late night out - well, that outfit is on your own.

Last But Not Least - 2018 Partner Spotlight - Dance Team Union (DTU)!

Big picture

Dance Team Union (DTU) was created in 2016 at the request of dance team coaches. After three years, we are now the fastest-growing camp and competition company in the country.


Dance is DTU’s primary focus and passion. We are an owner-operated business founded and run by experienced dance team professionals, which means you - not investor profits - are our #1 priority in setting policy and pricing. DTU will always be a place where coaches’ ideas and opinions are heard and respected. We are open-minded and nimble, which allows us to make immediate positive change based on your feedback.


Join us at our camps, regionals and/or nationals to experience the DTU difference and to help us shape the future of dance team. Be Bold. Be Authentic. Be DTU.


Camps


Because every team is unique, Dance Team Union offers four unique camp styles. Our customizable schedules allow each team to choose the type of camp most beneficial for their program. Best of all, our camps are not a hidden cost of going to nationals - teams come to DTU camp because they love it, not because they are required to be there! If you want your team to receive meaningful technical training and leave with a season’s worth of choreography, DTU camp is the right place for you.


Download the DTU Camp brochure here.


For more information about DTU camps, contact us at camp@danceteamunion.com!


Regionals


DTU continues to innovate at our regional competitions, offering more of what coaches care about as part of their regionals experience. Many teams use regionals as a building block for the rest of the season, so we are proud to offer audio/video critiques from every judge to every team at every DTU regional competition. Our critiques are included in your registration fee - no paying hundreds of extra dollars for this critical feedback! We also include master classes at each regional, which allows teams across the country to be exposed to new styles of dance by elite dance instructors and to bond with other teams who share their passion for dance.


Check out our ever-expanding 2019-2020 regionals schedule here.


For more information about DTU regionals, or if you would like to host a regional in your area, contact us at info@danceteamunion.com!


Nationals


DTU hosts the fastest-growing Nationals in the country, and we are excited to continue to offer more of what coaches care about - the most convenient venue, the most transparency and feedback, ample practice space, additional learning opportunities with master dance classes and DTUniversity courses, and more opportunities to bond with teams from around the country with our awesome Battle round and “penpal” program!


DTU is committed to creating a nationals atmosphere where you have the freedom to create routines that best represent your team’s personal style. We have worked hard to eliminate unnecessary music rules and other punitive rules that run counter to the true spirit of dance. Best of all, there are no political games to play, no “winning formulas” to figure out, no unspoken requirements to wear certain uniforms or use certain choreographers, no hidden penalties for being too different from the pack. Just be the best YOU that you can be!


For more information about our 2020 Nationals at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, FL on February 21-23, 2020 or our 2020 College Classic National Invitational (April 2020) in Las Vegas, NV, contact us at info@danceteamunion.com!
